Stata Tutorial

For participants in a seminar and master or diploma students writing an empirical thesis at a chair of the Area of Finance (not only the Chair of Finance), tutorials on empricial work with Stata and the databases of the University of Mannheim (e.g. CRSP or Compustat) will be offered at the beginning of each semester.

These tutorials are no mandatory prerequisite for writing a seminar, master or diploma thesis and are solely offered to help students prepare efficiently for empirical scientific work. Therefore you will receive no ECTS for participating.

A separate registration for this course is required. The corresponding application form can be found on ILIAS. Application deadline is the 23rd of December, 2017. Admission information will be sent out by the 2nd of January, 2018. As the number of workstations is limited in the BWL-Pool (36PCs), we cannot guarantee the participation of all students. If there are more participants than workstations, then those students are privileged, who are writing an empirical seminar from January to February.

We will inform about the next tutorial in due time.
